sounds great! ...and awfully familiar
Very nice music. It sounds so familiar. Is it deja vu all over again? The guitar player sounds exactly like the guitar player from "Hell's Half Acre," 1973. I've been a big John Zias fan for a long, long time. If you ever get a chance to see John perform, by all means... don't miss it. Thanks John... and friends.

Cream Puff War is smokin!
If you've ever wondered what the Dead's punkiest number might have sounded like if they had revived it in the '70s*, this is it!
Earth Bombs Mars does a faithful version of Cream Puff War while updating the sound of the guitar from Jerry's '66 freak-out style to at least a decade later.
The guitarist is practically channelling '77 Garcia.
The sound quality is good and loud.
* I shouted out a request for it at Winterland in '78, so at least somebody tried to kick start the tempo!

Double your fun again
This review is for both Disk 1 and Disk 2 of Live Spring 2003. Apparently these constitute a 2-CD album, a complilation from 4 live performances. Don't know if it was actually released, but it's certainly release quality material.
This is a creatively versatile band. Mostly rock, with sizeable portions of jam, jazz, funk, bluegrass, and the kitchen sink. All very well blended. Exceptional performances. Superb sound quality. This is thoroughly entertaining music.
I'm not sure how I feel about compilations like this, or even if they belong in the archive, since I have a strong bias for listening to entire concerts. I guess so, since it is all live music. In any case, this pair is bias-killer for me. I'll be listening to it a lot.
